About

Hedychium spicatum along with densiflorum is the hardiest of the Hedychium. Like densiflorum it is short, only growing 1-1.4m tall. It has glossy, narrow, dark green foliage that is tinted red on the under side, and has highly scented white flowers with a pink middle that are produced sparsely on the stem. Not the most flamboyant of gingers, but a good hardy invaluable ginger for the colder garden. 

Origin

Eastern India, Napal, Mayanmar, Tibet

Planting and care

Best planted in full sun or light shade in moist, humus rich soil. It will respond well to feeding throughout the growing season. Plant deep and give a good mulch for winter protection, or to guarentee full protection you can lift part of the corm and store it frost free during winter.
